(ATS) has joined forces with laser-based speed and distance measurement company Laser Technology
Inc (LTI) to develop and launch ATS StreetSafe. The handheld device is designed with the intention of protecting communities from the dangers of speeding as well as enhance enforcement.
LTI will be co-hosting an interactive webinar for police agencies across the world to discuss tactics that have helped reduce road fatalities and why video-backed traffic enforcement will soon be mandated in the United States.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there were 37,461 people killed in crashes on U.S. roadways, an almost 6% increase from 2015. Additionally, fatalities in speeding-related crashes increased by 4% from 2015 to 2016.
Liz Caracciolo, ATS safety general manager, said: “ATS is proud to partner with LTI to expand our portfolio of leading safety solutions. ATS StreetSafe delivers a seamless enforcement experience and provides police with yet another tool to help save lives and protect the communities they serve from the dangers of excessive speeding and aggressive driving.”
